Album Review

Drop Dead, Gorgeous' label touted their EP Be Mine, Valentine as "the ultimate break-up album." This is true, in a sense: any relationship that had this record in constant rotation would almost certainly breakup. With half of the band still in high school (and together for less than a year), their immaturity shows — from their formulaic, grueling take on post-hardcore/metal to their distraught emo-esque lyrics that make trendy use of dark and murderous imagery.

As most of the songs are less than two minutes long, the record seems to end before it even really starts; however, fans of Norma Jean and Fear Before the March of Flames may still enjoy the brutal echo left in Drop Dead's wake.
